Officer Myer and his family were miles away in South Carolina enjoying their vacation at the beach when they got a call saying their home was on fire.
"Am I dreaming still? I've been a cop 25 years and I've been to calls like this," Myer stated after learning his home has been devastated by fire. "Cops say I got this, I got this, well I don't have this. I literally just have two shirts left."
Myer says he is trying to stay upbeat for his wife, and 13 and 16-year-old daughters after losing everything they own.
From family photos, awards, trophies, to their Ford Mustang in the garage-torched.
Firefighters are still trying to determine what caused the blaze.
A neighbor saw the flames and called the family in the middle of the night.
Members of the community set up a GoFundMe page that's close to reaching its goal.

Neighbors are also putting the family up in a hotel as they go through the process of filing an insurance claim.
It's support that brings the veteran cop to tears.
"You know I've worn a uniform for 25 years and served and for people to serve us-it means a lot. They don't have to. It's a choice. It's very humbling," Myers stated. "My family will forever be thankful."
